The nature of teamwork in today’s organizations is evolving. New research conducted by Training magazine and The Ken Blanchard Companies found that while people spend over half of their time working in teams, significant gaps exist between what people want and what they are experiencing in terms of clarity, accountability, and leadership practices.

In this webinar, Blanchard researchers Lael Good and David Witt share the findings from the 1,300 person poll and identify steps for improving team performance in your organization.

You’ll learn about the perceived lack of accountability among team members as the number one obstacle to team performance. You’ll also learn about the impact trust has in determining the amount of effort people put into a team.

The survey found significant gaps between the amounts of support high performing teams receive versus the support average teams receive—at both an individual leader and organizational level. With today’s accelerated pace, teams don’t have as much time to form, experiment, and organically develop along the way.

Don’t miss this opportunity to review the state of teams in organizations and how to take steps to close the gaps.
